Please Note:

For Photo of the Day Subscribers, especially those subscribed to the Archives: When you click on a little photo, and put in your password and user name to get to the big photo, just click the back link at the top of the big photo. You will then be taken back to the main page, but with a difference. Now you will have date links at the top of the page right below all the ad stuff. All the previous photo of the day pages will then be available to you. Well, there are still some holes from times Monty was away on trips, but those will eventually be filled as best he can.

Due to a number of people who were stealing bandwidth, and the possibility of just grabbing the images off the site without paying for a subscription, software has been installed which scrambles the URL. Unfortunately, the net effect is a fixed image file name when you right mouse click and choose 'save picture as'. The image number is in the URL and so all you have to do is change the file name when saving the image -- simple cut and past would suffice here. I know this is more difficult than before, but to my knowledge (the software was developed third party) it is an unavoidable part of the security we had to instal. Considering that I have to type all the image data AND the image file name in manually for each and every photograph, you still have it easy. When using Microsofts Internet Explorer, the big images want to save as BMP's. If you find this annoying, try using the free Firefox browser. Firefox allows you to save the images as JPGs.

Please do not call the Wolf Park office with questions about the Photo of the Day page. Questions should only go to

About Picture of the Day

Established January 23, 2002, this page is dedicated to the goings on at Wolf Park and occassionally elsewhere when Monty travels about the country and abroad. This page is a response to all the calls, e-mails, letters, faxes, mysterious notes pushed under doors in the middle of the night... about when Wolf Park is going to get a webcam. Well, we are working on it, and have been working on it for many years now, so don't hold your breath. We are kind of out in the boonies and getting something like that is either going to take a very generous donation (which we would much rather use on the animals than some old webcam where you may, or may not, actually see anything...

So, when Monty went 'digital' in late 2001, he realized that it would be a simple matter to just post a nice photo of a wolf, or something, on the website every day or so. OK, so it took a few months to come to this realization, but when it did, this page was born.

There are just a few rules with this page. The photos MUST be ones taken on that one day. Actually, that is about the only rule. The photo may, or may not be posed until later in the wee hours of the night after midnight and so what you see here is usually going to be photos taken the day before. In fact, we generally try to post the photos late in the evening so that there will be at least some semblance of consistency to when you are most likely to not miss anything.

As for the content, well, the photos might be of a wolf, or two, but they may not. For that matter, the photo may, or may not be taken at Wolf Park. At times, the photos may not be even taken anywhere near Wolf Park when Monty goes on vacation to some distant land (which he does often does do...) So, in such cases, the actual time the photo was taken can vary depending on the time zone the photo is taken in, but it will be a photo taken on THAT DAY in that time zone....

So, when is the best time to check this page? You are pretty much safe if you check it in the morning through early afternoon Eastern Time Zone. Although the page is usually updated for the day late at night, it sometimes might be updated in the early evening, which could be early afternoon on the West Coast. Of course if you purchase a subscription to the ARCHIVES, you can go back and check previous days at your leisure.

Using These Photos

The photos you see here are for personal or educational use only. They are not to be used for commercial purposes without express permission from the photographer, usually me, but sometimes Jessica, Andrew, Gale and others at Wolf Park who may take the Picture of the Day photo.

If you are a student working on a wolf-related project and you would like to use some of these photos, please contact Monty for permission first, just to be nice.
